Some Last-Minute Redemption for the Houston Texans
Watching the Houston Texans through 3 quarters of last night's game against the Indianapolis Colts was a little discouraging if you're a Texans fan. Highly touted and rather expensive Quarterback Brock Osweiler just couldn't seem to get in sync with his receivers at all. The JJ Watt-less Texans defense kept the Texans in the game long enough to allow the offense to get on track just enough to pull off a miracle finish in overtime.
Late in the 4th quarter, Osweiler connected on 2 touchdowns in less than 2 minutes to tie the game at 23 with under a minute to go. Houston's defense held on the Colts last possession in regulation, forcing overtime.
In overtime, Houston's defense held when it counted again, got the ball back, and this time Osweiler was on target, getting the Texans in a position to kick a game winning field goal.
The win was important against their division rivals, and now despite struggling this season, lead the AFC South at 4-2.
Next week, a real test for the Texans as the head to Denver and Brock Osweiler faces his old team on Monday Night.
